  • This is a favorite barbecue recipe. The enticing aroma of the sizzling meat on the grill makes it very popular with the street vendors' clientele. Combine all the marinade ingredients and marinate the chicken wings overnight. Barbecue the wings over medium coals using direct heat for 10 to 15 minutes on each side or 425F in a smoker for 30 to 40 minutes or until they are cooked through and golden brown. Serve with steamed sticky rice. Keto diet note: There is one tablespoon of light brown sugar in this recipe. That represents 13 grams of carbs for 1.5 pounds of chicken wings. If you eat 1/2 pound (a lot of wings) your carb intake would be 4.3 grams and If your carb limit is 20 grams a day (like mine) you can still eat some chicken wings and stay within the 20-gram limit.
